The Ducks have reportedly re-signed one of their remaining free agents as General Fanager reports that they have inked right winger Stefan Noesen to a one year, two-way contract. Noesen will earn $600K at the NHL and $75K at the AHL level. There is also an additional $20K in guaranteed money meaning that he will receive a minimum of $95K.
Noesen is coming off his second full pro campaign (he missed all but two games of his first professional season due to injury) and spent most of last season with Anaheim’s AHL affiliate in San Diego. He suited up in 65 games for the Gulls, recording 10 goals and 22 assists with 56 PIMS. Noesen also got into a single game with Anaheim for the second straight year, being held pointless.
Noesen was a first round pick of the Senators (21st overall) back in 2011. He was dealt to Anaheim in July of 2013 as part of the Bobby Ryan trade; Anaheim also landed Jakob Silfverberg and the draft pick used to select Nick Ritchie in that deal.
The Ducks still have a pair of restricted free agents to re-sign this offseason in C/RW Rickard Rakell and defenseman Hampus Lindholm. Neither player is on the arbitration docket. Anaheim has just over $8.4MM in cap space according to Cap Friendly which should be enough to get both players under contract for next season.
